Living in the digitalized world is exciting, but also comes with many responsibilities.
To foster a generation of responsible digital citizens, we must remember that on the other side of our screens, there are real people with feelings. It is important to be kind to others and create a space in the digital world that's free from cyberbullying. Let's look into the criteria of cyberbullying-free friendships.
When a person gives advice that may negatively impact you, you should be able to say no. Keep a distance from those who would bring you negativity.
Choose friends whom you can cooperate with. Having friends who share the same interests and goals is an advantage. You solve your problems more easily with friends whom you can work closely with.
Accepting You Just The Way You Are
Good friends accept each other as they are, regardless of any mental or physical condition they may have. Someone who mistreats you probably doesn't accept you the way you are.
Choose Your Words Wisely
You can judge someone's character by the way they speak. Know who your friends are by the language they use. People who curse or use derogatory terms tend to behave negatively.
